The Motoz Adventure would be the best 50/50 that I have ever used they have very good grip on damp wet pavement they are very good in wet clay and rock and gravel. They do not make a lot of noise at speed they do move a little on the blocks but they have very good grip in all conditions.

Sounds great. Any idea of the maximum mileage you can do with them? I ride about 35 000km a year and 10 000km/set is the minimum for me otherwise I have to change tires every 3 months. Thanks for the info.

I would expect them to be about 5000km a TKC80 would normally last 1000-2000 km
They do have a less agressive Adventure tire as well called the GPS

Not sure where they may stock them.
With that milage do you need an offroad tire or could you use something that has longer life. If I go on a long road trip I put on a different tire.

Quite agree. Tubeless repair - dead easy. With a tubeless rim you can have belt and braces - tubeless tyre with tube fitted. Continental say "no problem". Other ADV bikes fitted with spoked, tubeless wheels include Triumph, Yamaha and BMW. BTW, Honda Crosstourer fitted with SPOKED tubeless rim. Be nice if we could have the same for the Africa Twin!

I feel that I'm being sold a bike with 21st century electronics (many of which I could do without) and 19th century wheels.
I'd like to know where the tube type fans that claim they can run lower pressures for off road use are finding rim locks to fit their rear wheels, as running low pressures without will likely result in a torn valve on the tube.

My previous bike the Crosstourer had tuneless spoked wheels - the spoke sits in the outer edge of the rim beyond the tyre seal.
I likes the look and clearly the technology is there - perhaps not as strong as the conventional spoked wheel off road but for those who use for mainly tarmac with the odd trail thrown in would be a good way to go. Perhaps one of the aftermarket suppliers may offer something?

Is it suitable/safe for road use?

NO! Unfortunately..From their website:

"TUbliss is for OFF-ROAD USE ONLY and is NOT recommended for street use. USING THE CORRECT TIRE for your riding is VERY IMPORTANT! For extremely rocky conditions (especially at high speed), make sure to use a tough 6 ply, desert-type tire to reduce the risk of cutting and punctures."

Motion Pro Bead Buddy II works on front rim, but back rim is too wide. So you will have to work a little harder on a rear wheel flat.
